Is it a new engine ?

My advice is to fly it without the governor and set up the throttle curves first, then put the GV 1 on and set it up to your desired headspeed.

Sceadu is a good solid machine

The GV-1 is still a good governer even though there are better out there. I still use one on my raptor 90 and just don't see the need to upgrade it

Hi All,

I flew without a governor on my 600N last year, but it was my first season. However, even as a beginner, the changing headspeed was irritating. Most irritating was the fact that my engine would lean out and speed up at the end of the flight when I wanted to do some slow hovering pirouettes.

This year, I'm taking care of that by putting an Align governor and a CarbSmart on it. That should totally take care of headspeed (and power) issues for this year. I'm really looking forward to flying it this year.

Keep 'em flying.
